Hyundai recalling 205,000 Elantra sedans in US; 58,000 in Canada
Last week, Hyundai posted a report on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website, revealing that it is issuing a recall of nearly 205,000 Elantra midsize sedans in the US, due to a problem with the vehicle's power steering. Another 58,000 units of Elantra are also being recalled by the automaker in Canada because of the same problem.
The Elantra models affected by the recall include Elantra sedans from model years 2008 to 2010; and Elantra Touring versions from model years 2009 and 2010.
About the reason prompting the recall of the mentioned Elantra models, Hyundai said that an electronic power steering sensor can malfunction, resulting in a sudden stopping of the affected sedans. With the power steering disabled due to the malfunctioning of a sensor, the running of the affected vehicles becomes difficult because the drivers have to steer the vehicles manually.
According to the documents posted by Hyundai on the NHTSA website, the power steering problem in the Elantra models being recalled can pose a potential risk of crash. However, the automaker has also said that, thus far, there have been no reports of any crashes or injuries because of the problem.
Hyundai will notify the owners of the affected vehicles about the power steering issue. The affected owners can take their vehicles to dealers to have the problem fixed free of cost.
